PUBLIC NOTICE: Tennessee Division of Water Pollution Control Solicits Water Quality Data. Is your stream muddy? Does it smell? Do you believe that your river or stream is polluted? Do you have any information that leads you to believe your local streams, lake, or river is polluted?

The Tennessee Division of Water Pollution Control is soliciting data for the purposes of developing the state's 2002 303(d) list of impaired waters. Section 303(d) of the federal Clean Water Act (CWA) requires the development of a list of Tennessee streams not currently meeting state water quality standards that would benefit from the development of a site-specific study called a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) and the implementation of a pollution control strategy. This compilation, called the 303(d) List, is subject to review and approval by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The 1998 version of the 303(d) List may be downloaded from the Department's Home Page at

Tennessee Clean Water Network strongly recommends that ALL WATERSHED GROUPS consider submitting information to Water Pollution Control. While the state already has a comprehensive list of impaired waters, do not assume every impaired water is on the list. Contact:  Gregory M. Denton, Manager Planning and Standards Section Tennessee Division of Water Pollution Control 7th Floor, L & C Annex 401 Church Street Nashville, Tennessee 37243-1534  Electronic data and/or questions may be submitted to: [email protected]   In order to be fully incorporated into this process, data would need to be received by January 15, 2002. While the Division will consider all data submitted, we reserve the right to incorporate only those data that meet minimum quality standards.
